are switching from nuclear warheads to nuclear cars. we are going to an e-mail from a toyota executive sent before the recall saying the company is trying to hide the acceleration problems. toyota's response, we admit to doing a poor job of communication, but here is the question, how long did toyota know about this before it became public? who has an idea on that one? >> i think the crime is that they covered it up. i think if you had a problem, whether it was five days as some of the recent correspondence indicates, or two months, it's too much time. if there were drivers on the road that were not safe, toyota has a problem, and it's a huge problem. >> but it's a question that i cannot answer. if i am correct, toyota sales were up, not down, up, about 40%. so do consumers not want brakes? how does it work? >> it took a 9% dip when the information came out, and then a jump up to 40%, huge earnings and a very different situation. it will be governed by the market, do americans still trust toyota, and then the deals toyota was offering, and i think they could continue to do so. >> the fine b
